Skull deformity implants are implanted to correct the skull defect which may be a result of severe head injury or trauma, massive cerebral infarction, brain herniation or brain tumor. Skull deformity implants are also used post-decompressive craniectomy. Decompressive Craniectomy is a treatment to cure Cranioplasty. Skull deformity implants help in restoring the integrity, stability the state of the intracranial structure of the skull. The aesthetic is improved immensely as well as greater protection is provided on implantation of skull deformity implants. Skull deformity implants are successfully implanted recently to reshape the skull and give it a uniform shape for individuals possessing congenital skull abnormalities or unsatisfied with their skull shape. In accidental and trauma cases, skull deformity implants aid in restoring the stability and integrity, provide oblong continuous appearance as well as helps in maintaining the intracranial pressure. Skull deformity implants facilitate the metabolism of brain tissues, re-establishes the brain protection, restores the function of cranial nerves and reduces the adverse consequences caused by the trauma or accident.
Skull Deformity Implants Market: Drivers and Restraints
Advancing technology Computer Aided Design and 3-D printing are fueling the advance and innovative products in the skull deformity implants market. A further boost is expected on successful results of researches in tissue engineering and regenerative therapies. Increasing accounts of accidents is considered to be the primary factor driving the skull deformity market. Moreover, implantations of skull deformity implants i.e. Cranioplasty is an inevitable procedure that is conducted post-decompressive craniectomy. Skull deformity implants play an important role for individuals possessing acquired or congenital skull deformities for their treatment. AdditioHealthnally, increased healthcare expenditure permits individuals to undergo surgeries to implant the skull deformity implants for improve and enhance their appearance. These factors propel the expansion of skull deformity implants market. However, skull deformity implants and the surgical procedure as often expensive which can be thought as a restraint for the growth of skull deformity implants in market. Brain being a delicate and vital organ, skull deformity implantation surgery should be free of complications and risks, if not, portrays as a restraint for expansion of skull deformity market. Nevertheless, increasing availability of trained experts could be a solution for this restraint.

Skull Deformity Implants Market: Overview
By material, PEEK and titanium are the most extensively used in skull deformity implants. PMMA is increasingly finding its role in skull deformity implants owing to its long-term efficiency and better resistance against adverse conditions. In product type segment, custom-made skull deformity implants are domination because of advancing technology in 3D printing and Computer Aided Design. Custom-made skull deformity implants allow the production of unique skull deformity implants which are specially and specifically designed for the individual’s skull, bone structure and requirements which is better than standard skull deformity implants. By application, skull deformity implants finds applications in temporal hollowing, accident and trauma, decompressive craniectomy, acquired or congenital skull abnormalities, aesthetic procedures, others. End users for skull deformity market are hospital, trauma center and super specialty clinics.
Skull Deformity Implants Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of geography, the skull deformity implants market is segmented into seven regions, which are North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Japan and Middle-East and Africa. North America is the most lucrative skull deformity implants market due to higher product penetration and greater patient adoption as well as due to higher spending on healthcare. Europe is expected to account for second largest market share in the terms of revenue primarily due to presence of manufacturers and greater product adoption. MEA skull deformity implants market is expected to witness steady growth but rather slow compared to other regions because of less healthcare expenditure. Asia-Pacific is regarded as emerging skull deformity implants market and is lucrative owing to the fast growing economies and rising awareness of skull deformity implants.
